Have you taken every assessment and personality quiz out there only to find that you’re still in the same place?
While the knowledge of being a “relator” or “achiever” or “learner” is interesting, you still don’t have a raise, a new career, or work that makes you happy.
The key to getting off this roller coaster to nowhere is a deep and thorough understanding of your strengths, and then applying that knowledge in a way that is useful and valuable.
Your strengths come so naturally to you they are often overlooked and underestimated. It’s tough for us to really define how we use our strengths, and even tougher to communicate that to our bosses or hiring managers.
To help you get off this rollercoaster and become more in tune with your strengths, HTYC’s own Cindy and Kate are taking over the podcast. They have each spent years learning and teaching strengths, and in this episode, they share how your unique combination of strengths work together, and explain how to capitalize on those natural abilities to help you thrive in your current work or find more meaningful work.
What you’ll learn
- How to understand what your mix of strengths mean to you
- The scientifically proven link between strengths and career satisfaction
- How nurturing your unique set of strengths can lead to more meaningful work
“It’s hard to find something that fits, that’s why so many people change careers. When I finally understood my strengths and how I could apply them it all made sense. It just made it easier to see what types of jobs and roles would fit me. In my new career I get to do the marketing that I love with a company I’m excited about.”
All the stars aligned and I ended up finding the right thing at the right place at the right time, and it was you guys! Everything that you said was speaking to me and the things that you had done in the job that you had transitioned out of and into. Also how finding work that you love is your passion for people! Honestly, it was you Scott, I mean, the way that you talked about it, how passionate you were, I was like, there's no way he's gonna put out a faulty product. So I'm gonna try it, you know… I recommend you to all my friends, you know, even if they don't realize that they're looking for a new job, I'm like this is the first step, let's do this! Even if you maybe don't move out of this career. This is going to help!
